Want Something – Get Something -Enjoy Everything

All or Nothing?

“Perhaps when we find ourselves wanting everything, it is because we are dangerously close to wanting nothing.” — Sylvia Plath

Which do you find more dangerous: wanting nothing, or wanting everything?

 

Wanting Everything is what I find as dangerous as dangerous as wanting nothing…

Reason wanting everything turns a normal human being into a greedy monster who can stoop to any lowest level to get what’s wanted.
And even if one does not go down to the lowest levels “wanting everything” sometime had its adverse effect and results in having nothing cause of the risk taken to have everything. After losing what we once had there is no looking back cause whats lost can never come again

Besides this, even if what we had remains with us but disappointment of not able to have “what was wanted” can surely shake anyones confidence. it can end up raising concerns on self capability, whether we truly deserved to have it…..

All in all Wanting Everything turns life empty as we keep on running to get this or that and eventually wanting still more.

Wanting nothing is also dangerous, it turns life into Pond of water with no fresh waterflow. After some time there can only be smell and weeds and no sign of life.  When one does not want anything there will not be any motivation to do something new in life, To achieve a bigger goal in life, To reach a new destination.

There should be proper balance between Wanting and Getting and Enjoying.

Want something – Get something – Enjoy everything : Happy life Forever.

A Poem – “Hope Time Flies – Forever”

Time Just Flies and Goes By In a Blink of Eye,

Started with an Hi but now no chance even of a Bye.

 

it was easy to become friends but difficult to remain one forever,

Its simple to say I’ll be there always but impossible to prove it ever.

 

Thinking of happy days makes me sad as they are past now,

But then past sad days makes me happier cause they are over now.

 

Life was tough then but easy to handle with no complications.

Now its easier but full of complications and tougher to handle.

 

Hope time flies again…

So I can take a deep breath…

And can fly with it somewhere far far away…

There will not be any new “Hi” and no more unsaid “Bye”.

Daily Prompt: Our House

Daily Prompt: Our House

What are the earliest memories of the place you lived in as a child? Describe your house. What did it look like? How did it smell? What did it sound like? Was it quiet like a library, or full of the noise of life? Tell us all about it, in as much detail as you can recall.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us HOME.

My dad had transferable job so we had to change cities every 2-3 years. And couple of times we were for 7 years in a city as well. But still none of those places caught my attention as my Paternal home with my Lovely Grand-Parents around. We used to visit them twice every years on Holi and Diwali. And those days were the best days for me.

Its situated in Kasganj, Distt Etah, Uttar Pradesh, India.

Description….It was a fascinating place full of love and affection….a wooden front door with a latch on top. Our train was scheduled to reach 1.30 am at night and my dad used to hit that latch on the door to wake everyone up and then my grand mom started to call with joy that we have come. That was the most most amazing and heart-warming welcome I have ever heard and encountered in life so far. Reason excitement to us after so many months and love in her voice always made me wonder how much she loved us….just how much…..And now when my mom does the same thing to me when I go back to home I just re-live those moments again.

As soon as we crossed the front door….a small porch having hand pump and stairs to go on rooftop at right hand side. At the end of porch there were three old styled wooden doors for the very first room and it had another room behind. First room had three big big frames hanging on wall on left side, one at center of Lord Rama with his family on its right Lord Hanuman’s but I can’t recall the third one. It had one shelf at front and there was placed my Grand dad’s Old Radio which he loved very much. And I too loved it just cause of its Antic Looks but I loved it more when during cricket world cup we could not watch Semi Final Match between South Africa and Australia on tv (due to power cut) and then we listened all commentary on that Radio that too on the Rooftop with cool breeze. It was all exciting like doing something extraordinary. A small black and white TV set which had Doordarshan and I loved watching it sitting with Grand dad. What I loved the most was how he used to describe all News and current affairs simultaneously to me while watching it.

We had a big kitchen too….where I used to tease my mom whenever she was there cooking just to get some attention as she used to get so busy there to not to notice me at all (so my naughty self could not digest my mom ignoring me at). Also I always love asking my Grand dad to get angry with my dad as he used to shout at me for not studying (lol…)those was the most awesome moments of my life, when grand dad started to shout at my dad and he just used to listen everything like an obedient son they both used to trick me like that to make me happy and smiling.

Then on rooftop….My grand dad used to teach me play Chess, and show me all his collection of new paper cutting sitting on a charpai. There was Tamarind Tree just on front of the rooftop and we all kids love plucking tamarind (kachi imli) from it. When i was just 4-5 yrs old My grand dad was a principal in college and he used to give tuition to students, I used to sneak peek from the stairs so that he could call me. And as soon as he used to call I ran and sit in his lap all happily smiling. He used to teach all students and I used to look at them with so proud that see I am so big in front of you. I was always a curious soul and I am still the same, and what I liked the most was to ask question and my grand dad loved answering all my silly, stupid questions. I would ask just a small thing and he used to tell me everything in detail. And I still wonder how come he was so Intelligent in just everything…….recalling all those days just make me cry.

A place with so  many memories….happy – sad – good- bad but all are going to be with me life long. As it was just not a home for me it was a part of my Personality, reason for me to be what I am today. Cause I have seen My mom-dad respecting my grand parents like God, My Grand parents loving my parents and me and brother more than their own life, how disciplined a person should be, how determined we have to be in tough situations, keep fighting always. And many many more teachings.

Everything at this place was so unique that I can consider it as an Antic for me…..from its build to furniture to emotions to respect and love….just everything.

If it would have been the same way now as it was then I would have spent years to click it again and again in my camera.

Oh Wooww….Me And Very First Award at WordPress…

A usual Monday for me I woke up late to think what do be done on this Monday to start this week in a better way than last week. I opened my laptop and found that aleniaban nominated my blog for an Award and I was shocked. Reason for being shocked was obvious as my blog never had many followers and I could not post on regular basis so all I could do was to open her blog and see what it is exactly.

But finally after reading through it I was happy that I got nominated…thats all mattered at that moment (and still…) as its a way to encourage blogger like me (having less than 200 followers) to be more active.

Thanks a lot Aleni for your nomination and it made the start of my new week super duper happy. Hoping it will be like that till this weekend.

*********************

Aleni gave me below questions and I’ll try my best to answer:

1.  What’s your preferred mode of transportation?

I’d love to drive my own vehicle(car or scooter) but I could not learn driving yet. So it leaves me with the option of Auto.

2. Have you imagined yourself what you are right now?

No..I never imagined that I can be here where I am right now both professionally and personally. Its something unexpected coming my way.

3. If you have one thing that needs to be done today, what would it be?

My mom went back to my native place, I’ll just bring her back to be with me at my place.

4. What language do you wish you could speak fluently?

Korean…I love watching K-dramas and learning Korean language bit by bit and I’d love to be fluent in it.

5. What’s your kind of day?

My Kind of day…hmmm pretty difficult to answer as it all depends on my mood. If I am in good mood then all I’ll do is watching k-dramas back to back with Ramen (Ramyun) and a cup of tea. Secondly to click tons of pictures with my camera.

And if my mood is bad then all I do is sleep whole day or click photographs of any random thing around me. Just to straighten out my mood.

6. What would you tell your least favorite teacher right now?

Sorry sir/madam for not liking you then as now I can understand that what all you did was your best.

7. Would you change anything about yourself?

Yes I would like to change my short temper. As I get angry very very easily even with my closest family members and friends.

8. Dog or cat?

Not sure…I dont like either.

9. Do you believe in faith?

Yes I do but only in God. As Faith in God makes life easier, as we can feel that God can’t do anything bad to you and whatever happening today (bad or good) is going to be end for our Best in future.

10. Have you witnessed a miracle?

Yes I have witnessed not just one but so many…..

As Miracles are the smallest things happening around that we can see and feel, with a increased heart beat and eyes popping out, hows that possible to happen with me. And I had encountered so so so many things like that in my life till date.
